Pa Bobo Jaboreth

Bobo Jobarteh teaches children in the Gambia the ancient and traditional instrument of the kora. Constructed using 21 fishing lines, it takes
hours of study and practice – and expertise passed on by the music master.
Pa Bobo is very active in the local community, bringing music into
the lives of local and also worldwide students who sometimes
visit for kora lessons. It is a lifetime’s
work to teach the kora and the method has been
handed down through generation upon
generation in the traditional way.
